My passion for photography began when I was 17 years of age as I was studying graphic design in Atlanta. I changed course after getting a bargain on an old Ricoh Singlex II from my supervisor at RadioShack. I switched my studies to photography at a tech school in Charleston and became obsessed with the dark room, headphones glued to my ears, blasting dark music to match. I was captivated by the work of Jerry Uelsmann, Cindy Sherman, Richard Avedon, Ansel Adams, Robert Mapplethorpe and many more. I quickly began assisting other commercial and editorial photographers, learning more and more about the trade. I traveled all over North America with various shooters, absorbing invaluable knowledge, knowing one day I was to be behind the lens as they were. I shot weddings, babies, families, absurd events, anything to keep me enveloped in photography. I slaved away in a lighting and grip rental shop, I worked in theatrical and event lighting, I was on electric crew in television shows, and I never stopped learning. I was a lion on the prowl for mastery.
I bring all of this knowledge and experience to each and every job for each and every one of my clients today as an award winning photographer. My passion for this art grows infinitely as I create with all of you amazing people.
